If a Wheaton student is unable to attend a class, due to illness and or emergency, their responsibility is to contact the faculty member directly (there is no excuse for not doing so, given Email, voice-mail and the ease of putting a note on their doors). You are an adult and you will be treated as such. If you will only miss one class, they might not request a medical or other confirmation. Be advised that the Health Center will not generally provide notes. You are allowed to grant permission to the Health Center (if that is where your medical care took place) to confirm to your professor(s) that you were seen there. If you will be out of class/away from campus for several days, you are still responsible for contacting all appropriate faculty members.
